This workshop will provide an overview on understanding the cultural context of experiences and the spectrum of diverse Latinos and families today. As diverse Latino populations have increased in size in the United States, service provisions from all disciplines need to integrate culturally responsive services that will increase recruitment and retention of Latino families. Discussion will cover the significance of understanding the experiences of historical to contemporary oppression, racism, discrimination and the negative effects on mental and physical health problems.
